Finally, a server that can be deployed by parachute
If you've been looking for a server that will work even if it's baked, frozen and dropped on its head, you're in luck. NCS Technologies just unveiled a machine that withstands extreme conditions, including the fog of war, reports IDG News Service's Agam Shah.
NCST's Bunker XRV-5241 was built for first responder organizations, the military and other groups operating in tough environments. It can survive a free fall of about one meter, and it is designed for deployment via parachute. When it's not running, it can endure temperatures between 158 degrees and minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
When the need for a server-on-the-go arises, the XRV-5241 can take advantage of a vehicle's power sources in addition to its own 750-watt power supply.
